Penn Hills' quarterback Billy Kisner, above at practice on Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013, had another strong rushing performance against North Hills.

The Indians varsity football team battled back from a 14-0 second-quarter deficit to improve to 4-1 on the year, coming home from North Hills High School with a 21-17 win.

The Indians outgained North Hills by more than 120 yards, with the lion's share (190) coming through their running game.

Junior running backs Isaiah Jones and Te'shan Campbell combined for 120 yards, with quarterback Billy Kisner rushing for 57 of his own, including one for a touchdown. Jones and Campbell averaged six yards per carry or better on the night.

Senior wide receiver Michael Anthony caught the lone touchdown pass, a 21-yard reception that brought the Indians within two, before a successful 2-point conversion on a run by Isaiah Jones.

The Indians will host Bethel Park, with whom they share a 4-1 record, this Friday at Yuhas-McGinley Stadium. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
